Afternoon or Morning depending on what side of the earth your on!

Really exited now, off to Sydney again, not 8 months like before, but long enough to see the sights.

Just a question; can i just go to the bank and open an account, i'll have like $2000AUD on me, and don't feel like carrying it around. I'm thinking Commonwealth Bank. I've never had a prob ANYWHERE i've been in the world. Mostly everyone is courteous.

I used to use a pack safe around my backpack, does anyone else do this? i gave up when travelling around Europe, just let it go without. put a keyring around the zips.

Any other useful info would be much appreciated :)

Yes you can. If you want to open with Westpac you can go here and open it 12 months before you even arrive. The other banks probably have similar services.
